It’s not ignorance. He was asking an excellent question. I would be happy to have him as my children’s Rosh HaYeshiva. This website needs have comments turned off, or at least make it a requirement to have people identify themselves by name so that we only say things that we would say to the other person face face.

Frumroshyeshiva simply asked a question. Asking that question was not shameful. Thank you to the others that answered, very nicely, the question that he – and I – posted.April 3, 2020 1:16 pm at 1:16 pm in reply to: Why do so many continue to ignore restrictions on gatherings and travel #1846716
Frumroshyeshiva, I have wondered this too. Of course I am complying because that’s what we’ve been told to do but I hope it’s OK to ask questions like this.April 3, 2020 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm in reply to: Why do so many continue to ignore restrictions on gatherings and travel #1846690
Can we please restore Ahavas Yisroel by not fighting among ourselves and by not talking about others?April 3, 2020 1:43 am at 1:43 am in reply to: Why do so many continue to ignore restrictions on gatherings and travel #1846595
Maryland issued an interpretive guidance that allows an exemption for religious gatherings of 10 or less people. Obviously since the Gedolim have forbidden it, to disobey would be a Chilul Hashem.
I didn’t know about this until this Pesach, for some reason I never picked up on it until this year. I have to admit that I join in with a few words during the repetition if the amidah (like “Kasher Ratzita”) and to me and all the many others in our Shul that do it, it’s part of the enjoyment of the davening. I once was taken to task when I was leading the davening for doing chazanus that didn’t include all the parts that people like to join in with and I made sure I didn’t make that mistake again! My daughter just showed me a video someone shared with her that shows a chazzan in the audience signing “Ka’Eylah” very loudly before the ba’al korei says it and I had to explain to her what it meant, at which point she thought it was very funny (just like I did).
I saw him at his Yeshiva this evening, he looked well.
Yes I have received a kosher meal on an Amtrak train. You do have to preorder it.
